DEHRADUN, 12 Jan: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is steering the “Eat Right India” Movement.
On Saturday, 12th Jan., The Shugan Group organized an Orientation Workshop on “FOOD SAFETY” as an active Training Partner in association with FSSAI.
This is a collective effort of key stakeholders and citizens and is aligned to Government’s recent focus on public health through three key programmes ‘Ayushman Bharat’, ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’, and ‘POSHAN Abhiyaan’.
Swasth Bharat Yatra, is an outreach of the ‘Eat Right India’ movement, a PAN lndia cyclothon. 150 ‘Volunteer-Cyclists’ along with the ‘Eat Right Mobile Unit’ and ‘Mobile Food Testing Unit’ would travel across the country over 100+ days to engage citizens on issues of food safety, combating food adulteration and healthy diets.
In this backdrop, Shugan Hospitality Pvt Ltd (Institutional & Outdoor Catering Services) has taken an initiative to support and participate in this inspiring event to promote public health and bring to life Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of a healthy and productive India.
With the increase in food-borne diseases, unsafe food and poor diets, a large number of citizens today are suffering from micronutrient deficiencies, even as obesity and non-communicable diseases are rising at an alarming rate.
Leveraging the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, this All India Cylclothon will be used as a vehicle to promote public health through creation of community champions and ambassadors at the grassroots levels.
